Les iris et les œillets de la cour des senteurs

There was a riot of irises and carnations at the scents courtyard last weekend! Of course, both flowers are used in perfumery hence their presence here!

Bien sûr, ces deux fleurs sont utilisées en parfumerie, d'où leur présence ici.

The Iris is such a complex flower. I love them. I have a friend who has been posting photos of his Iris on Facebook almost every day.

Lovely shots. I love the scent of Iris---sometimes and some kinds. MB

And Nathalie has poppies today. More reasons to visit France.

I've heard of gardens for the blind in the US but I'm not sure I've ever visited one.

So many people are posting photos of iris now, and while mine are up, they're nowhere near blooming.
Soon, perhaps. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy these.
Thanks!

I've been admiring the irises around my house, but none of them look quite as glorious as these.

Irises are my favorite ruffly flower...

The purple irises are special. I love them, but have never had much success in growing irises, so I don't grown them any more.

I saw your question about capital and Capitol. A capital is the city that is the political headquarters of a state. A Capitol is the building in the capital that holds the legislature. Now that you and I know that, we are among 50 total.
